A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
Peoria Center for the Performing Arts
8355 W. Peoria Avenue Peoria
Be transported back to ancient Rome and experience the wild antics of the mischievous slave Pseudolus in Stephen Sondheim's laugh-out-loud musical A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. This slapstick romp sings and dances its way through mistaken identities, a house full of courtesans and an elaborate web of lies -- all adding up to one uproarious night of theater. The winner of six Tony Awards, Forum is one of the funniest musicals ever written, as Sondheim collaborated with writer Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H, Tootsie) to seamlessly combine situations from the timeless comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the fast-paced, slapstick energy of classic vaudeville. Step into the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts and enjoy classic Sondheim showtunes like "Lovely," "Bring Me My Bride" and the Broadway favorite "Comedy Tonight."
